After reading the letter, Curry and Under Armour decided to change the way they market shoes to girls. They also invited Morrison to design the artwork on the inside of a new version of the shoe.
“I wanted to make sure she was a part of that,” Curry said. “So it’s awesome to be here to see the entire story come full circle.”
Morrison says she can’t describe the feeling of seeing others wearing the shoes she designed, telling CBS News’ Dana Jacobson it’s “a dream come true.”
